Make it Monday #263

It has been quite a while since I participated in one of PTI's Make it Monday challenges. This week's technique is "background building with frames"

Think Pink in October





















October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. So many ladies close to me have fought / are still fighting a battle with this awful disease.
I made this card with inspiration from the following challenges:
CQC #362
CASology Week 218 - Support
Time Out Challenges #67. The theme is Breast Cancer Awareness/Friendship

SAF 2016 - Share Your Masterpiece

I made this mini Christmas album so long ago but it still remains one of my favourite creations. Probably has to do with Christmas being my favourite time of the year.

Looking forward to a crafty weekend with lots of SAF inspiration.

Freshly Made Sketches #228

I used this lovely sketch from Freshly Made Sketches to make this card. Embossed the medallion image with white EP and then 'smooshed' with Distress Inks.

PTI Blog Hop - November 2015



This month's PTI blog hop is about all of the fun nontraditional color schemes, like the one in the inspiration photo above. Silver, Hawaiian Shores, Tropical Teal and Simply Chartreuse are what we see! All against pops of bright, crisp white! Use this inspiration pieces as a jumping point for your next project, which could be holiday or non-holiday. 

 My inspiration came from the framed mirror and deer head.

ColourQ #313

Such pretty colours to work with this week at ColourQ.
While thinking about this challenge, I was inspired by the pattern on a tissue box.

PTI Blog Hop - October 2015



The challenge for this month's blog hop is to create a project inspired by the photo.
I straight away thought of Christmas... so I made a Christmas card. I used quite a few stamps from different sets to make this card. I used the smallest bloom from 'Christmas Poinsettia', one flourish from 'Fancy Flourishes', another flourish from 'Holiday Photo Finishers' and the sentiment from 'Think Big Favorites #20'. I just love traditional Christmas colours!

I also made this gift card holder which I CASEd from Claire Daly.
